The theme of this year's Banbury event was 'bring along something unusual'. That could be everything from a custom paint job to a unique model based on a Trix chassis.

BANBURY

2008

Here's a 9F based on a Trix Express BR42 mechanism.

A popular 'special' is the British 2-4-2 tank loco built on the German chassis. 

A wild paint scheme for an EM1 Bo-Bo electric. Perhaps a European livery?

Attractive British Railways lined green loco similar to the station pilot at Newcastle in the 1960's.

BR suburban coach body combined with the TTR 'Portsmouth' chassis.

A most interesting black Brittania - it does not appear to be a repaint! 

A fine range of specials - 'Sir Nigel Gresley' and 'Plymouth' (both on Trix AC Pacific chassis).

Attractive Meteor livery - deep blue early BR.

North British Railway livery 0-4-0 and coaches.

Trix Express Diesel Flyer body converted to Great Western railcar.

Compound conversion to Southern Railways 4-4-0.

 

USA Passenger loco stretched to become a 4-4-0.

 

A more modern Union livery for the US oil tanker (usually silver Texaco or red Union Oil).

 

Trix 12v DC chassis with stretched AC 0-4-0 body to make a convincing North Eastern 0-6-0. 

 

Trix Southern 0-6-0 DC tank in attractive LBSC 'Bluebell' livery. 

 

A perfect match for the Trix 0-4-0 mechanism: an industrial saddle tank.

Trix Express 0-6-0 chassis and body transformed into a wartime USA loan tank loco.

High Capacity wagon in Wimpy livery with tarpaulin.
